The School of Law fosters and promotes research in all major fields of legal study.
Our national and international research standing represents our excellence.
We recognise the growing internationalisation of research agendas in legal, socio-legal, and criminal justice studies.
Our School adopted a strategic focus on Global Law and Justice as a unifying theme and a driver for further research development in 2006.
We run lively programmes of seminars and colloquia, host visiting scholars and work with policy makers.
